    #46 - How to Use a Pitot Gauge for Hydrant Flow Testing
    Need to test a fire hydrant's rate of discharge? Read this blog to find out how this is accomplished, and what steps should be taken to ensure accurate results. A popular way to perform hydrant flow testing is by using a Pitot gauge, which consists of three components: a blade, handle, and gauge. It remains one of the fastest, most efficient methods for measuring both straight tip and hydrant flow GPM to uncover reduced flow rates.
